I was vacuuming the dust out of my Toshiba M105 laptop while it was running. I tried sucking the dust out of the CPU fan and it immediately stopped and Ubuntu automatically shut down.

I've tried rebooting and so on, but I can't get the fan to start. When I reboot into windows, it runs okay. But when I run a stress test, the CPU temp quickly shoots up to over 80C and keeps going up, before I stop the test to prevent damage. How do I fix this?
